    Exclamation Dash is shloooo....

    Is it just me or is Dash slowing down again? every time I press super key it takes a while to search for all apps and docs before showing icons. Then it is ok, works good and fast until the next time I use suspend or shutdown. Isnt that what ureadahead is for? Dash just seems to take longer and longer as time goes by.

    Thank you for any help.

    Ubuntu Unity 12.04LTS (64-bit), I set Do not log activities for Firefox Web Browser. Sped up Dash and overall system response.

    System Settings > Privacy > tab for Do not log activities

    Not sure what exactly slows indexing down with Firefox, but Dash is not needed for Firefox ( FF has it's own history and search function).
